Email communication is sent to employees included on the Hazardous Waste Distribution lists 1 month prior to each pickup date to ensure sufficient time is given to prepare.

Please Note: Contact safety@flemingcollege.ca if you have hazardous waste, but have not been added to the hazardous waste distribution list. 

A completed Hazardous Waste Disposal Inventory must be submitted to safety@flemingcollege.ca 10 days prior to the pickup date to ensure your waste will be included on the pickup day.


Please take all inventoried waste to the Hazardous Materials Room (located on the loading dock in shipping and receiving) once the following steps have been completed:

  • Hazardous Waste Disposal Inventory has been completed and sent to safety@flemingcollege.ca
  • Safety has confirmed the inventory is complete and the items are able to be moved to the Hazardous Materials Room


Once the Hazardous Waste Disposal Inventory has been received a communication distribution will follow with all pertinent information in regards to when and where items will need to be taken for the scheduled Hazardous Waste Pickup.

HE, RDB, LAW/ARB – no need to transfer as the material will be picked up at these buildings on the scheduled Hazardous Waste Pickup date.

Inadequate, improperly sealed or generic labelled containers (e.g. “waste chemicals” or “Hazmat”) WILL NOT be accepted.
